Board Trustee

Inspirational person committed to growing an organisation dedicated to changing lives of young people required.

An unemployed young person is more likely to remain unemployed later in life, suffer from mental and physical health issues, and become involved in anti-social behaviour. Haringey Stars (registered charity No 1122251) was founded to improve this outcome for the youth in North London. Also known as Ingenium, Haringey Stars aims to improve the lives of young people, particularly those not in education, employment, or training (NEET) or at risk of becoming NEET. The programme creates pathways to employment and career progression by developing programme participants’ confidence, leadership, and organizational and social skills, by engaging them through performing arts.

Our upcoming exciting project namely ‘Genius Search’ commences in Autumn and will culminate in a showcase on 10th December 2016. This is a music project integrated with events management working with 15 creative young people over 10 weeks and leading to an Arts Awards qualification.

To continue our work we are now looking for trustees to join our Board. The Board of Trustees provides strategic direction and accountability.
